Subject: Could prove a different point.
A fun music video with animated antiquities, but:

While the "All creative work is derivative" thesis may well be true, the video could also illustrate a different point entirely: Humans have a tendency to include the human form in their material culture. (Which need not arise through cultural transmission).

Subject: Very relevant
A creative way to prove a point. Culture in its broadest sense must not be copyrighted. Great video.
